lyrics

Los Niños Del Desierto

Con miedo y la cara fria, sale el sol y el nuevo dia
Trae con si la posibilidad
De dejar la pesadilla atras, de alcanzar un sueño al despertar
Y con la frente en alto andar

Jugo, pan, y ave marias, madres suben con sus crias
A la troka sin mirar atras
Las palabras quedan ya de mas, El horizonte brinda su calzar
Y el desierto a caminar


Y no hay refugio del intenso sol, hay tres botellas de agua y tortas de jamon
La mochila casi ya vacia,
La comida de mi madre y el rosario que me dio
Por que estoy listo pa cruzar, por que estoy listo pa cruzar
Por que estoy listo pa cruzar - mi nueva vida comenzar

Pasan horas, pasan dias, pasan hambre y noches frias
pasan pero no pueden cruzar
Las palabras quedan ya de mas
El desierto viene a reclamar su tarifa que es mortal

Y no hay refugio del instenso sol, Labios cortados, secos, sabor a dolor
Que alguien encuentre escrita esta cancion,
Pa que le cuenten a mis padres por el rumbo que fui yo
Y ahora estoy listo pa soñar, porque estoy listo pa soñar
Por que estoy listo pa soñar - en lo pudo y no sera


Children Of The Desert

With fear on a cold face, the sun comes out and with the new day
It brings with it the possibility
Of leaving the nightmares behind, to reach a dream while awake
and to walk with my head held high

Juice, bread and Holy Marys, mothers climb up with their young
To the truck and never look behind
Words are overdone, the horizon offers its sole
and towards the desert we walk

And there is no resting from the intense sun
There are 3 water bottles, and ham sandwiches
The book bag almost empty, my mother’s food and the rosary she gave me
And I’m ready to cross, yes i’m ready to cross
Because i’m ready to cross, and my new life to start.

Passing hours, passing days, passing hunger and cold nights,
Passing but they cannot cross
Words are overdone
The desert comes to claim its mortal entry fee

And there is no resting from the intense sun
Cut up lips, dry with a taste of pain
Hope that someone finds this written song
So they can tell my folks through what paths I have been
And now i’m ready to dream, and I’m ready to dream
Because i’m ready to dream, about what could have been but was not.
